Panel from a Staggering Heights cartoon, 2003

Staggering Heights is a comic strip by Joe Forkan that was published in weekly newspapers nationwide from 1995 – 2003.

This website will eventually be an archive of the more than 400 Staggering Heights comic strips and comic book, a blog for new material – cartoons, sketches, illustration work, with the occasional rambling observation related to comics, cartooning and illustration.

Joe Forkan is currently an Associate Professor of Art at California State University Fullerton, teaching classes in the Drawing and Painting, Illustration, and Animation areas.

  • Wow. I’d forgotten just how truly rich and wonderful these characters and stories are…and how harshly the saga ended (or sort of ended). I salute Mr. Forkan’s decision to post the full collection as a permanent web archive for all those unfortunates and ne’er-been-born-yets to savor in one big I-dare-you-to-eat-it-all serving. My tinfoil hat is off to Mr. Forkan, and a gentlemanly tip of my drool cup in his direction.

    I dig your work. Playing one side against the other, in bed with everybody – just fabulous stuff.
